Hi I’ve just joined and hoping to get support and guidance.
I’m going to have a mental health assessment next week and don’t know what to expect. I see people, shadows, lights and feel things and hear noises, foot steps, voices and can’t stand being in a waiting room as the chatter is too much to bear. I’m on antidepressants and promazine and feel so down and tired of pretending I’m ok with everyone. Of course people notice I’m not the same don’t go out except for work and kids to school which I find hard and takes great effort. I feel I’m clinging on by the skin of my teeth and any second what I’m feeling thinking and hearing will blast out and take over and if this happens I’m worried I’d be sectioned. I have strong urges to suddenly climb tress want to push people etc. A voice will tell me to do things and I try to ignore but the last time I couldn’t and didn’t eat anything for 4 weeks.
Any advice please.
